INTRODUCTION

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical engineering has been developed with the objective of producing graduates capable of understanding, adopting and utilizing technology to produce tangible products and services at affordable costs. Such graduates are required to conceptualize, design and manufacture, and maintain products, machines and power plant, as well as provide leadership in various industrial and organizational setting.

The curriculum run by the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Makerere University provides students with the science, technology and engineering knowledge to solve engineering problems with an understanding of economic and social implications. Students receive instruction in mathematics as well as engineering sciences and technology in a wide area of fields including fluid mechanics, heat transfer, materials, dynamics, controls, and manufacturing processes.

They also learn the computing, computer-aided design, communication, problem-solving, modelling, and testing skills required to contribute to the development and utilization of technological products and services, locally and internationally. They also receive a suitable background to pursue postgraduate workin engineering and other disciplines. The wide range of opportunities available to mechanical engineers, such as leadership
in various industrial settings, means that the mechanical engineering curriculum has been enriched with core aspects of management such as organization, planning, strategy, marketing, operations research, finance, and costing.

JUSTIFICATION FOR THE PROGRAMME

Equipment and mechanisms are central to our modern engineering industries, and an understanding of their nature continues to be essential for all engineers. However, these fundamental mechanical skills are increasingly being extended to cover growth areas such as precision engineering, mechatronics, and a multitude of mechanical engineering advancements. Many of these advancements do not make the headlines
but are crucial to our everyday lives, making them easier, faster and more efficient.

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical engineering has been developed with the objective of producing graduates capable of understanding, adopting and utilizing technology to produce tangible products and services at affordable costs. Such graduates are required to conceptualize, design and manufacture, and maintain products, machines and power plant, as well as provide leadership in various industrial and organizational setting.

OBJECTIVES AND EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES
